Dean Pees’ retirement from his old job as defe

Post by panxing18 » Mon Sep 30, 2019 11:05 am

nsive coordinator with the Baltimore Ravens sure didn’t last very long. Not with Mike Vrabel pouncing on the chance to lure his former coach to work with him in Tennessee.Now the NFL schedule is giving the defensive coordinator a chance to try and slow down his old team on Sunday.“At some point in time when I do conclude my career Lamar Jackson Jersey White ,” Pees said, “it will be to me a unique situation and a unique opportunity I was given to work for two guys that are great coaches and were great players for me, and for me then to kind of give back and the fact that I kind of know them so well. We’re on the same page as far as how you do things and that kind of stuff, it all kind of came from the same school.”Ravens coach John Harbaugh, who played for Pees at Miami (Ohio), hired his former defensive coordinator in 2010 as linebackers coach before turning over the defense to Pees in 2012 — a year Baltimore won the Super Bowl. Pees held that job through last season before retiring after 45 years as a coach.Vrabel, who played for Pees in New England, called Harbaugh and Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome for permission to talk to the retired Pees once hired as the Titans head coach.Safety Eric Weddle said it was tough to see Pees join the Titans.“We were all happy for him, because we know how much he loves coaching,” Weddle said. “But he’s with them now. We appreciate what he did here, but we’re doing our thing now, and he’s doing his.”The Ravens replaced Pees, 69, by promoting Don “Wink” Martindale. Vrabel hired Pees to replace Dick LeBeau in Tennessee.“Replacing Dick LeBeau anywhere is not an easy thing to do, and I was very aware of that, but I felt like we needed a change,” Vrabel said. “And Dean has been everything that I had hoped for.”Both the Ravens (3-2) and Titans (3-2) come into this game off disappointing road losses. Baltimore lost 12-9 in overtime in Cleveland https://www.theravenslockerroom.com/authentic-lamar-jackson-jersey , while the Titans fell 13-12 in Buffalo.After kickoff, friendships are forgotten for at least three hours.“Once the game starts, we’ll be trying to choke each other out,” Harbaugh joked.Some things to know about the Ravens and Titans:DEFENSIVE SHOWDOWNWithout Pees, the Ravens remain just as stingy, leading the NFL in scoring defense and with 34 tackles for loss. The Ravens haven’t allowed a touchdown in the second half of a game this season. Baltimore also is third in fewest yards allowed, four spots ahead of Pees’ Titans, with Tennessee third against the pass, just ahead of Baltimore. Tennessee leads the NFL in red zone defense.The Titans hope to get back veteran linebacker Wesley Woodyard after missing a game with an injured shoulder, while Harbaugh hopes to get back defensive tackle Michael Pierce after missing a game with an injured foot.JACKSON’S JAUNTSDrafted 32nd overall, rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson gives opposing defenses something else to think about when he lines up behind center. The 2016 Heisman Trophy winner ranks fourth on the team with 72 yards rushing and leads Baltimore with an average of 4.5 yards per carry. Jackson ran three times for 10 yards last week and threw an incomplete pass. He’s 1 for 5 through the air this season.NEED MORE OFFENSEThe Titans are coming off their second game this season when they couldn’t score a touchdown. Luckily, Marcus Mariota and his elbow is off the injury report for the first time since being hurt in the season opener. But the Titans could be missing left tackle Taylor Lewan, who hurt his right foot in Buffalo. Mariota said it’s just a matter of execution and the Titans have to get better.HEAVY WORKLOADTerrell Suggs was used for 66 of the 71 total snaps last week against the Browns, no small workload for a 16-year veteran who turned 36 on Thursday. Suggs is Baltimore’s career sacks leader with 129, including 3 1/2 this year. A rigorous training regimen has enabled him to maintain a degree of excellence, but Harbaugh acknowledged that 66 plays might be too much.PAYBACK TIMEOdds are good that C.J. Mosley will get a chance to tackle his former Alabama teammate and current Titans running back Derrick Henry at least once, and the Ravens linebacker says he still owes Henry from last year. Henry converted a big third-down late in a Tennessee win with a big stiff arm Womens Mark Andrews Jersey , breaking loose from Mosley. “I have to make sure that this time I don’t let him get a big play,” Mosley said.___AP Sports Writer Dave Ginsburg contributed to this report.___Follow Teresa M. Walker at www.twitter.com/teresamwalker___ BALTIMORE (AP) — In a matchup between the league’s highest-scoring offense and top-ranked defense, the New Orleans Saints and Baltimore Ravens played to a near draw.New Orleans didn’t come close to matching its average of 36 points, and the Baltimore defense finally wilted in the second half — thanks to the stellar play of Saints quarterback Drew Brees.At the end of New Orleans’ 24-23 victory, players from both teams had plenty reason to feel good about how they performed.Everyone except Justin Tucker.Tucker was 222 for 222 on conversion kicks until he shanked one to the right with 24 seconds remaining and overtime seemingly waiting for these two evenly matched teams.“I can’t tell you exactly what happened,” Tucker said, “but at the end of the day I feel like I cost us the game.”The missed kick gave Brees his first career victory over the Ravens, the only team he had not defeated. He joins Brett Favre and Peyton Manning as the only quarterbacks in NFL history to beat every club.Brees threw his 500th TD pass to help the Saints (5-1) extend their winning streak to five. Manning, Favre, Tom Brady and now Brees are the only members of the 500 club.Joe Flacco went 23 for 39 for 279 yards for Baltimore (4-3) and fashioned a wonderful late drive to put the Ravens just an extra point away from overtime.Some other things to know about the Saints-Ravens game:THE FOURTH ESTATECoach Sean Payton had the Saints go for it on fourth down four times during a 20-play game-opening drive, the lone unsuccessful attempt coming on the final try, when a fumble by Taysom Hill was recovered by the Ravens’ Michael Pierce at the Baltimore 6-yard line.New Orleans was 4 for 5 on fourth-down conversions for the day, something Brees said set the tone early for the kind of offensive game they wanted to play.“It gives you a lot of confidence, you know?” Brees said. “Feeling like he’s putting the ball in our hands to make the play and he’s got plays he likes. That makes us feel like we’re playing to win, not just playing.”BROWN DELIVERSRavens receiver John Brown bounced back from two uneventful games with seven catches for 134 yards and the potential game-tying score with 24 seconds left.Brown signed with Baltimore as a free agent in March after playing four years in Arizona. He leads the Ravens in yards receiving and touchdown catches (4).“It was good just to be able to make the plays.The opportunity came to me,” Brown said. “You can take all those yards back, the touchdown back. I’d rather get the win.”A DIFFERENT LOOKBrees is a pure passer Mark Andrews Jersey White , so teams know what to expect from him. But Payton continues to integrate Taysom Hill, a second-year man out of Brigham Young, into the offense to give opponents a different look.So far, the ploy has paid dividends.“He made some big plays,” Payton said of Hill, who rushed three times for 12 yards. “He had a toss and he kept the ball. Look, he does so many different things. He’s a football player. When the game is over and it’s a grass field, his uniform is dirty.”JACKSON’S SIXRookie quarterback Lamar Jackson scored his first NFL touchdown and gave the Ravens the lead when he carried the ball into the end zone with four seconds remaining in the first half.“It was amazing. I’m in touchdown heaven, or football heaven, whatever you want to call it,” he said. “Man, I’m taking this ball right to the sideline and keeping it.”Jackson was the second of Baltimore’s two first round draft picks this year. The Heisman Trophy winner in 2016 has appeared in every game but had not contributed a scoring play.HOLD THAT LINEWith Josh LeRibeus subbing for Andrus Peat (head injury) at left guard and reserve tackle Jermon Bushrod inactive following the death of his infant daughter, the Saints knew they’d have to get a cohesive effort from the offensive line to prevent Baltimore’s barrage of blitzes.Well, Terrell Suggs‘ sack of Brees in the fourth quarter was the lone blemish on an otherwise spotless day of protection. And that came with LeRibeus missing time due to an ankle injury.
